ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Opponents of President Donald Trump’s reelection announcement in Florida are launching their protests at a nearby gay bar where a mariachi band and a drag queen will perform.
    
Organizers of the “Win With Love Rally” say Trump’s announcement in Orlando on Tuesday is an affront to a city with a large Puerto Rican population and a visible gay community.
    
The chairman of the local GOP says protest organizers are wrong to believe that the president is anti-gay or anti-Hispanic. Charles Hart says Trump fights for all Americans.
    
Organizers of the Trump announcement are hosting an all-day festival – dubbed “45 Fest” – outside the Amway Center on Tuesday.
    
Protest organizers are promising an appearance by the “Baby Trump” blimp at the bar after they raised money to bring it from South Florida.
